Speaking of "All-pro J.J. Watt". Does anybody think we need to update the banner at the top of the page? I think he's the best player on the team now and is definitely deserving. Should we go with the "Salute" or the "Finger swag"? (that's what I'm calling that celebration)

I understand that, but my point is that he's not rushing from the edge like the traditional sack artist do.

The fact that he's getting a bunch of these sacks and pressure from inside is amazing.

And I agree. Jj watt is just another way to say beast.

If Mercilus would be the guy we drafted him to be, our pass rush would be amazing.

So far, & this is only my opinion, but Jj, Kareem, & Demps are the only guys who picked up where they left off last season.

You've had a shocker these past few days haven't you mate.

First we hear what a shame it is to see JoJo's horrendous play, now Demps is the 3rd best performer on D

Wade designs his system to feature a certain pass rusher, if you've got Watt coming all day long from the inside, you can use your OLB's for other stuff that also contribute.

How many short dump-offs have opposing QB's had available to them so far this season? Still think our LB corps is underperforming? Sacks aren't the most important stat-line on D.

Fixed the emphasis for you. You can feel secure in your individuality because everyone else here thinks you don't know what you're looking at.

I never said Jjo's play was horrendous. Only not as good as it was last year.

I never said Demps was our third best player, or that Kj was our second. Only that they are playing as well as they did last year, getting better.

This year's Jjo has not been as good as last year's Jjo. This year's Barwin, Antonio, Quin... have not been as good as they were last year.

I think Brooks had a good game Sunday & hopes he'll build on that next Sunday.

McCain is looking a little better than the guy he was in 2009, not as good as the 2011 guy.

How about we change the thread title?

JJ Watt: Defensive MVP

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...enders-for-mvp

He's definitely a contender if not the leading one as of right now. Still way too early of course though...

JJ Watt has 7.5 sacks after 4 games!!! Are you freaking kidding me?

Dude was the best pick in the 2011 draft, bar none, IMHO.

Mario who???

Default Re: JJ Watt: All-Pro DE

The play that really stood out to me today was in the 1st quarter I believe it was when Brooks got the pass deflection. Watt noticed the right tackle was trying to kick out so before engaging the guard, he made sure to go out of his way and shove Stewart to the ground to take him out of the play which ultimately freed up Reed. The guy is Mr. Intangibles and just knows football.

JJ Watt is the best defensive player in the NFL. Not a question in my mind. There is not a single defensive player that I would take in a straight up trade for JJ.

Sacks - Season to date (through Week 4)

J.J. Watt___- 7.5
M. Williams-- 1.5

J.J. added 2 more sacks today, per ESPN. Mario Williams did not register any sacks, but did have two tackles, including one tackle for loss.

If Mario Williams is given a 7.5 sack over/under for the entire season, which would you take? Personally, I am taking the under.

I really believe that this is a perfect storm kind of situation. It's not just that Watt is great (he is) or that Wade's system is great (it is). It's that Watt is the perfect player for the system he's in. He was literally drafted by the best team possible for him.

I keep hearing him being compared to Howie Long.

I'm old enough to have watched Howie Long play in his prime. He was damn good. Really, really good.

But he never played the way JJ Watt is playing in 2012.
